I was born and grew up in Zimbabwe, Southern Africa where
I attended British-type schools, and lived in a small rural town.
I then headed "south"to attend university in Natal, South Africa,
graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and
Psychology. I thereafter spent a year in Cape Town, getting a
postgraduate degree in Education. Upon completion, I returned to
the capital city of Harare in Zimbabwe and took up teaching at a
public school. I finally emigrated to the United States in 1986
with my husband and child, and settled in Ojai, California. Due
to the demands of motherhood, I chose to limit my teaching to
private schools in Ojai, including the Weil Tennis Academy ,
where I was the principal for five years.
Once my children were grown, I immediately stepped into public
school teaching where I have been happily ensconced ever since!
I completed a master's degree in education last year and recently
became a National Board Certified teacher.
As anyone who knows me can attest to, I am a huge
Dodger fan! I also enjoy puzzles, particularly
Sudoku, and love to travel.
